butter London Patent Shine 10x Swatches and Review

Hi everyone!

Today I have swatches for 5 polishes from the butter London Patent Shine 10x Collection.

The Patent Shine 10x Lacquers are a 10-in-1 formula that is meant to be long-lasting with high shine. The range comes in 32 colors, and there is definitely a shade for everyone. All of their nail polishes are also 8-Free, which means they do not contain the dangerous ingredients Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin, DBP, Toluene, Camphor, Ethyl Tosylamide, Xylene, or TPHP.

Here's how butter London describes these lacquers: Butter London's innovative patent shine 10x formula is loaded with ingredients proven to promote brighter, stronger, healthier nails for your best-dressed nails yet. The patented shock resisting polymer technology delivers limitless shine with up to 10 days of wear. It’s everything you need in one brilliant bottle.

Keep on reading to see which polishes I tried out and what I thought about them. Fair warning: this is a photo-heavy post!


First up is one of my top two favorites... This is "Candy Floss", a baby blue creme. Here I'm wearing three coats with top coat.

Even without top coat, I will admit these polishes are pretty shiny. They definitely can be worn without a top coat, I just always prefer to put one on in order to finish and seal in the nail polish!

Ariana Grande Cloud Sweetener Nails | NailsByErin

Hi everyone!

Today I have a super simple nail art design for you all, inspired by a nail design that Ariana Grande wore last week.

She posted a picture in her Instagram stories of her wearing matching cloud nails with her mom and her Nonna. As soon as I saw them on her story, I took a screenshot and knew I had to recreate it!

(I just want to mention, this nail design was done at @nail_swag salon by @natalieminerva. All credit to her for this beautiful design!)



Here's the image Ariana posted in her story of her nail art with her mom and Nonna:

Mint and Rose Gold Floral Nails | NailsByErin

Hi everyone!

Today I have another floral design to share with all of you. These are some of my favorite manis to do! I incorporated some of my favorite polishes and designs into this one.

I have been really missing doing my simple geometric designs lately, and since you all loved my Rose Gold X Nails so much, I figured I would try another rose gold pattern. I actually pulled some inspiration for this from my Purple and Gold Floral Nails from a few years ago, where I did a white and purple floral nail and had the leaves in a metallic gold.

I have always loved that design and I was hoping to re-vamp it into this color scheme and add a little bit more of a geometric accent to it using some nail vinyls.
